It was a gorgeous day. We went to La Mesa Village for breakfast. I can't remember the name of the place but they used to have this huge apple nut waffle. Now they have apple nut french toast. On the same street was a bead shop!! I've been to this lil street before because my friend used to live in La Mesa not too far from where we ate but I had never seen a bead shop before. I remembered going into the lys (which I didn't go into this time around!) but not the bead shop. Oh, how I wish I had had cash with me! She sells beads individually. Normally the places I've been sell them in packages or in bulk. She had some cute ones too. I have decided when I go down to San Diego again, I will go to the bead shop prepared. :)
The highlight (for me) of our day in San Diego was probably going into Coronado. I had never been there before and my friend has lived in San Diego as long as I have lived in LA and he had never taken me there (or even suggested it for that matter!) until that day. They have got to have the most beautiful beaches in Coronado.
I found so many shells (sorry no pics of them!) and we even came across some sand dollars. And would you get a look at that sand! We were amazed even by the sand. It had flecks of what looked to be gold glitter and what I thought might be black sand. The sand was of a finer grade too. Our feet didn't sink into it as we walked. It was so perfect, picturesque, and peaceful in Coronado. We will definitely be making more trips out there.Our last stop was Balboa Park. There was an Annie Liebovitz exhibit. We didn't go though because we didn't want to pay the $10 or $11 per persion to get in. We just went into the gift shop and my sister leafed through the book they had of a collection of her photographs. We just walked around as my sister took in the sights and the amazing architecture.
